However, that’s a very small complaint about a watch that otherwise delivers so emphatically. To be clear, The Forerunner 945 is currently the best sports watch in Garmin’s brilliant line-up. It offers all of the smarts of the Fenix 5 Plus range but with better battery life and more in-depth training analysis. It’s more comfortable and cheaper at launch, too.

Better training analysis and added smarts make the 945 a huge upgrade over its predecessor

from Wareable

For our money, the Forerunner 945 is the best watch in Garmin’s superb line-up. The lightweight design is slimmer and more comfortable than the bulky Fenix 5 Plus, and yet crams in more features, including the impressive training load analysis. It’s expensive, but if you’re a serious runner...More

For our money, the Forerunner 945 is the best watch in Garmin’s superb line-up. The lightweight design is slimmer and more comfortable than the bulky Fenix 5 Plus, and yet crams in more features, including the impressive training load analysis. It’s expensive, but if you’re a serious runner or triathlete, the Forerunner 945 is the best watch you can have on your wrist.

It’s not the easiest smartwatch to get the hang of, but once you’ve mastered the manual operation set up, you’ll find it one of the best training buddies around. The only setback is the price. However, once you consider just how much tech is crammed into the Forerunner 945 for the money, and how much use you can get out of it in terms of both fitness tracking and smartwatch features, we think it’s worth every penny.

The most full-featured triathlon watch on the market today

from DC Rainmaker

The new GPS sensor is kinda meh. While I get that it provides significantly longer battery life, there is the tradeoff for less accuracy. It’s not as bad as some of their competitors using the same sensor – but it’s also not as good as the FR935 was. I’ve no doubt it will improve (I’ve...More

The new GPS sensor is kinda meh. While I get that it provides significantly longer battery life, there is the tradeoff for less accuracy. It’s not as bad as some of their competitors using the same sensor – but it’s also not as good as the FR935 was. I’ve no doubt it will improve (I’ve seen notable improvements even in the last 4-6 weeks), and I’m not getting any ‘horrid’ tracks’. Just some tracks that are kinda…well…shrug.
